2024-25 Transportation

Transportation services will resume for K-8 students on August 22, 2024. Bus route information will be updated through our student information system, PowerSchool, and families will be notified via email when bus pick-up times and routes are available.

Reminder! Transportation During the First Weeks of the School Year

As routes are finalized and students and drivers become more familiar, we ask for your patience early on in the school year. Please allow for slight delays in arrivals and departures.


We know the ride to and from school is an important part of the day for our students. Our team works closely with our transportation providers and families to provide safe and efficient service for our students.

District 65 bus service is provided by a local company, Positive Connections. Elementary students who reside 1.5 miles or more from their attendance-area school or reside where walking to school or to the bus stop would constitute a serious safety hazard are eligible for district-provided transportation at no cost to families. There is no district-provided busing for middle school students (Chute, Haven, and Nichols) with the exception of students who have transportation written into their Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or who attend Chute and live west of McCormick Blvd. Some students may also be eligible for transportation as required in their Individualized Education Plan.

We strongly encourage walking or biking to school whenever possible and encourage our families to utilize our Safe Routes to School.
